Hello, welcome back! I am back from my little vacation! Hope you had a great Easter! Today I have a card to share that I was going to post last week, in fact some of you may have received an empty post…LOL…sorry about that, but today for sure you will see my card. And now we know the Flowering Desert stamp set is retiring. I am sad as this set is such a fun set. Anyway, here it is.
Isn’t this a happy card? I love how you can build your own kind of cacti with it. So fun!!! I wanted to keep my card focus on the retiring colors, so I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst mostly to create this card
INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE LIFE IS GRAND BIRTHDAY CARD:
- The card base is Basic Black card stock 5 1/2 x 8-1/2 score and fold at 4-1/4.
- I cut a 3-3/4 x 5 size Watercolor paper, stamped the biggest cactus using Lemon Lime Twist ink, the other cactus I built using Tranquil Tide ink and added the flowers using Berry Burst. I painted my sky using Pacific Point ink and a little more Lemon Lime Twist and the desert with Crumb Cake.
- Next, I cut a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Lemon Lime Twist panel and adhered it as a matting to the art panel. Tie a bow around the art panel.
- Cut a 3/4 x 3-3/4 vellum strip and stamped the sentiment on it using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and adhere it on top of the ribbon and finally adhere it to the card front.
Here is another look of my card created with the Flowering Desert stamp set.
